McDonough, Stono Inlet, S.C., July 15th, 1864", Wm. A. Jenney tells a friend that he has just joined the Navy. He tells of an "expedition up the Stono river" where "the rebs opened a heavy fire…from a fort a thousand yards distant and I tell you the shot flew like hail stones all around us but not a single shot struck us". He then talks of retreating a ways down river until re-enforcements, in the form of "Admiral Dahlgreen [sic]…in the flag ship with two monitors, the sloop of war Pawnee and two Mortar Schooners and a number of army transports loaded with troops" and goes on to tell of a ten-day battle after which he is "not able to inform neither the object nor what we accomplished by the expedition", Very Fine.
